During CE Week NY 2014, I sat down with Head Monster Noel Lee to discuss the latest, fashionable Monster headphones that were just introduced at the Monster Press Conference on June 25th. Monster Products is definitely catering more to women, with my favorite, the luxurious Diamondz™ Rose Gold On-Ear Headphones and N-Tune™ Pearl On-Ear Headphones in pearlescent pastels.
Noel walked me through what everyday consumers should be looking for when shopping for a pair of headphones, which is a different focus when it comes to men and women. For men, the number one quality that they still buy on is sound quality, in which Monster has their own technology called Pure Monster Sound™. For the best sound quality, lookout for the DNA Pro 2.0 Over-Ear Headphones coming soon. People, especially women, buy headphones based on comfort and style, such as the Inspiration Noise Canceling Headphones that are inspired by the iPhone and great for travel. There will actually be a promo on the Inspiration Headphones starting in about a month, at airports, offering $50 off if you have an iPhone. The Inspiration style is extremely versatile, with over 60 interchangeable headbands from patent leather to feathers. If you love bling, you'll want to check out the crystallized headphones that will be available at Harrods of London.
Noel gave a few headphone recommendations for anyone who is petite - the Diamondz™collection and Inspiration Light. He also showed me the perfect workout headphones - iSport Victory In-Ear Headphones with neon accents. Monster Products is on-trend with headphones in black/white, white with rose gold and black with rose gold. You can see the full selection of Monster headphones at monsterproducts.com.
